Guardian
Guardian « Guild Wars 2

Everyone can do both ranged and melee. Everyone can be damage or support. Guardians have a lot of things that enable them to last a long time. Maces can heal passively, and many skills heal as a component. The healing boosts are a function of the class. But no, what you are describing is not unusual. Played well, any class can totally decimate and survive.

As an aside, a guardian is my main, and a thing I noticed in your traits is an ability that allows greatsword attacks to passively heal you. As you seem like the greatsword as much as I do, that might interest you.

This sounds very similar to what I have done. We are all very lucky.

Seconded.

Even with the (let's be honest, comparatively *very* few) problems, this was the best MMO launch I've been a part of, and I pre-order and play almost all of them.

And regardless of launch, it might be the most fun I've ever had in a game, ever.

But honestly, if there are still people against this game, I don't want to deal with them. I don't think we would agree on much of anything.

This is a known problem and they are working on it.

You can submit a ticket here: http://en.support.guildwars2.com/app/ask. I would do that and wait. They totally screwed the pooch on account security, but one of the things they have done is lock affected accounts.

It is true they need one, but what they really need is the most basic thing with account security. Do not let people change their email, account name, or password without getting secondary authorization. That you have to authorized *before* the change. That's pretty basic, and they don't have it.

At least i was ablt to log in and did not expierience any problems with the account. 
  No, it doesn't. The guildwars2 . com website allows you to change the email with ZERO secondary or third-party site (i.e., from your email) authorization. If they can log into your guild wars account, they can change the email. They don't need access to your email to change it.
This. Its pretty lame.

Again, clicking email links has nothing to do with the e-mails posted in this thread.

I wonder if OP has gotten a response yet. I know most people have not. Pretty horrid customer service.



Some people aren't reading or can't accept that this is happening without people falling victim to phishing. Well, it is.

Don't be too upset by the customer service. They are totally inundated right now, and are probably working their asses off. I am not saying it isn't their fault. It is, for terrible account name/email policy, and an utterly ridiculous email change system which needs no secondary verification before your email is changed. It's terrible, and the poor security is there fault. Not that the players, myself included, are not at fault for losing their passwords to a site at some point and getting into whatever database is doing this.

If you have been "hacked," if you can access your NCSoft Master Account using your account username (not the NC email) then you can save your account. Whoever is doing this is not changing the NC master stuff, apparently.

If you can log in to your NC account, you can see the email for your Guild Wars (and 2, if they are linked) accounts. You can also change the password for your GW account. Knowing the new email and having changed the password, you can log into the guildwars2 website and change your email to something else (I would NOT use the same email as before).

If this works, you should change your GW password, your NCSoft password, and any other game passwords that are the same or similar. Having breached you once, they are more likely to try again to get that account in the near future. It would also be a good idea to update your security questions at NCSoft, and de-authorize all locations. You might also want to change any fansite passwords to a third, different password to prevent future attempts later. Remember to make fansite passwords and game passwords different, and make those different from master account passwords. Make all these different from real-world services like banking. You can never be too safe, and even if you have several passwords like I do, it is better safe than sorry.

Edit: I feel nearly certain that dumbo has the right of it in this case.

It doesn't matter how legitimate they look. If you did not JUST change your password, don't you dare click it. If you do, you are taking your account into your own hands. People should know this by now.

They have a 2 step authentication method you can enable which requires you to authorize the computer, etc... Most people don't turn it on.

For Guild Wars accounts? Not NCSoft master? If so, I am afraid I am not familiar with it.

Originally posted by Kniknax I got an email from Anet 2 nights ago - saying someone (hopefully me) has requested a password change, click here. I deleted it. Last night I was logged out mid-game due to "logging in from another location". I quickly went into account management and reset my pass, and logged back in. This is the first time it has happened to me in 10 years of MMO'ing. The first email seemed to indicate someone had a list of usernames and was going through them clicking "I've forgotten my password". But how they then GOT my password is another story - and there have been a number of bans due to hacked accounts - so goodness knows what they are saying once they are in!
They might have your email account and password to it, as well.  Check to make sure your email is secure.

Apparently, if they know the GW password, they can change this email address with no secondary authentication through your email. The email is just instantly changed. So then they can change the password or whatever else they want. They don't need access to your email to change it.

Like or not, it is the biggest launch this year, and that usually translates to at least a few awards, if not MMO of the Year.

I haven't been fooled by one of those emails in more than a decade, and I seem to have been hacked today.

I know this is how I feel, going from game to game to game, and nothing ever really felt right, nothing really fit, not for a long time. For quite some time now I have been going back to WoW when I need something MMOesque, because up until now, it was the only game polished and well-made enough that I could stand it for very long. And as we all know, that's because the core code and concepts were done by the same people at Arenanet. I shudder to think what happens when they retire.

Luckily GW2 has no gear treadmill so that won't really affect them. As to OP: Me, I'm trying to plan out my G13/G600 "optimal setup" for GW2 as the G600 was just recently ordered and hasn't arrived yet. (well that, and posting in threads with uninformed or malicious haters trying to counter their posts with some actual facts... can't wait till I'm in GW2 and away from them all!)
I was only joking!. lols. =]

Ah, do you guys remember that stark hell in which we fought over rare, powerful loot drops?

No more, my friends, I say NO MORE!

No, this weekend we embark on a new, fantastical journey a fresh hell, full of centaurs and zombies and dragons and where I can pick whatever damn armor I want and screw the rest!

When I can run up to a person in the world and he will be trying to help himself, and I can work with him. Where anyone else can help us all complete a task. No more will I be forced to work alone, or force others to do the same.

No, my friends, this weekend we enter a new world, with new possibilities. A world of danger and wonder and madness.

And I am literally just sitting at my desk salivating now.

I can play fine with 30 or so FPS. I am used to seeing that range from television, and it doesn't really bother me that much. I can tell a difference though, up to about 60 or 70, and that is my preferred range. In most games, I can easily get that, but with GW2 it has been lower, 20-30. There are many optimizations that have happened and a new Nvidia driving forthcoming, so I am hopeful for the long term.

Originally posted by clumsytoes44 They made a fun game were other people near you isn't a frustration, like in most mmo's.
This is actually a very major point.  All of us that have played several mmo's know that feeling you get when you're given a quest to do something, fight your way through mobs for several minutes to get to a location just to find several people standing around waiting their turn to complete the objective.  ANet said early that they were creating a cooperative pve gameplay experience and they've done it.  In the hours that I've been able to play I've discovered that I've actually wanted other random players around when I'm doing things.  It hasn't mattered if it's a DE, a heart quest or just running around attacking mobs in my way, that unspoken temporary partnership in eliminating foes is enjoyable.  In addition to that, we won't be seeing the same names as we level with a growing hate ("oh, it's that jerk again"), but with a growing familiarity ("oh, this guy will attack in this manner") so we can essentially play off of these 'strangers' as we would our usual party members.


This is a big thing I noticed. Even if you didn't know the person, you would see them over and over, and maybe a couple of lines traded about specific goals or something, and you see them again, and again, and each time you talk more, and you can much more easily make friends in this way. That feeling of seeing another player and thinking that it's a good thing instead of being annoyed, that is the single more important thing they changed with PvE, more even than DEs themselves (though I doubt either would have worked well without the other). It changes the entire PvE experience, top to bottom.

And I swear, I am losing my mind to people saying Anet built the hype. Yes, they are doing more hyping things in the past month, before release, like any product, but before that, in the preceding many months, it was players who had played the game and been taken away with how much better it was than everything else. And when it is the players themselves speaking out for their love of the game, that isn't hype. I just want the game to come out, and then I can stop reading and listening to statements that deny the basics of the English language or random trolls, and just enjoy the game.
